## Old DIPs
Right now https://github.com/dlang/DIPs repository contains
archive folder with already implemented proposals imported from
wiki (please tell me if there are any other already implemented

will have to re-submit them as a pull requests towards new
repo. This is required so that we can filter abandoned
proposals and focus on documents that have active authors
